Inspections of law enforcement agencies should be conducted on a regular basis to help ensure that the department is operating at peak efficiency and in compliance with established professional standards. When conducted properly, inspections enable managers to assess the department’s ability to perform its mission, and provide them with the information necessary to plan for the improvement of the department’s operations. Inspections are a vital component of departmental self-assessment and as such should be carried out with care, attention to detail, and with the full cooperation of all personnel concerned.

These documents establish procedures for conducting inspections of the department’s administrative functions, facilities, property, equipment, operations, and personnel.
